Could anyone share information and/or experience they have about setting up community sharps bins? Our health unit is looking into possibly providing community partners with bins but would have a memorandum of understanding that would have the onus on them to maintain and manage the bins. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Kim! The Brant County Health Unit provides sharps bins in the community - both public outdoor bins and smaller bins for individual community organizations and businesses. The Health Unit does all of the collection of used sharps for all of these bins. I am not directly involved in this work but if you email me I'd be happy to connect you to those who are -
